Review of my 11th published book


"Think, Be still, and Grow spiritually"more

By Nazeer Sultan, Performance Management Consultant

The author of ‘Think, Be still, and Grow spiritually’ invited me to conduct a review in a special haven.  I chose Tobago.  The hundreds of gems that were revealed in the pages far outweighed the investment of time and energy over the weekend.  It was a delight. 
        The more I lowered ‘the great intellect’ (the author’s terms), the more evident became the practical life lessons.   I discovered insights in arriving at core values and purpose, and manifesting them through daily applications.  I learnt about the self awareness that the observer and witness can access, creating the basis for a more wholesome life.  I couldn’t escape embracing the values of the Samurai – discipline, service, honour. 
        The author further warns us about bad habits and negative passions of mind – anger, lust, greed, attachment and vanity.  This rich underlay was made possible (as one reads in the introduction,) by a combination of fate and faith.  Being born in the beautiful republic of T&T, which gifted him a rich diversity, and being conditioned by his mama into service-mindedness and duty, the author conceived his job at NCB as “a ministry for lifting up the soul of a nation.”  One can sympathize with him therefore for the length of time needed for forgiveness of the actors in the NCB story. 
        The reader also gets glimpses of a man who knew his purpose - to live a wholesome life and to be healthy, wealthy and wise.  This clarity, together with his appetite for search and knowledge, brought him face to face with today’s challenges of stress management, change, habit formation, thinking clearly and crafting a happy life in a turbulent, chatter-filled world.
        The author’s spiritual awakening started at twelve. And it continues.  He never wanted to travel the road of those who had neither eyes to see, nor conviction to pursue.  And so, denial, service, duty – deliberate and cautious – were the DNA qualities unmasked.   But something more is offered in these pages. They reveal a man with the courage to examine, reflect, and assess his life and distil critical lessons; a man not afraid to recognise that ego comes in the way of one’s gifts.   One also learns about his daily challenge to restrain the five negative passions of mind, recognising in the process that “human love is imperfect, jealous and unforgiving.” 
        I concluded, after my Tobago weekend of reading, that these pages are filled with lessons from mother, marriage and the struggles of living the wholesome life.   But somehow I believe that the author, in these sunset years, has more to offer us.  This speculation is mindfully revealed in the final chapter where he invites us all to come out of our comfort zone and be more spontaneous and adventurous.  One can understand therefore why I await his next book “Celebrate life... Rochford unplugged”.
